Brooklyn Decker wore this mismatch of a Giambattista Valli dress with Blue Nile jewels to the California premiere of her new movie, “What To Expect When You’re Expecting.” And while we’d generally be hard-pressed to find anything wrong with gorgeous Brooklyn, it’s undeniable that the top half of this dress does not go with the bottom half. Not only that, it kind of reminds us of the outfits hacky-sack playing girls would wear in college. But is that a problem? For you, it might not be.
You know, I never took Elizabeth Banks to be particularly on-point fashion-wise. And then she killed it earlier this week by wearing a gorge and very structural Mary Katrantzou dress to the Met Costume Institute Ball. Here, at a New York screening for her new film “What To Expect When You’re Expecting,” Banks follows it up with a sassy and somewhat avant garde number from Peter Pilotto.

The ensemble cast includes Elizabeth Banks, Anna Kendrick, J. Lo, Ben Falcone, Thomas Lennon, Cameron Diaz, Chris Rock, Joe Manganiello, Chase Crawford, Dennis Quaid, Matthew Morrison … and the list goes on. It’s a decent ratio of funny people to beautiful people, though I generally find that bigger does not mean better when cast size is involved. (Case in point, “New Years Eve”‘s lackluster reviews!)

Cameron Diaz may be anti-marriage, but she isn’t opposed to the idea of having kids. She is rumored to be close to signing on for a movie version of What To Expect When You’re Expecting. Yes, as in the pregnancy manual. Lionsgate is currently putting together a film based on the best-selling book, but it won’t be a how-to. It’ll be a romantic comedy about five couples who are about to have a baby. The movie’s director compares it to “Love Actually.” Keep reading »
